Over recent weeks, a maturing Jamie Donaldson has realised his Ryder Cup ambition and now, after his most successful year to date, the Welshman will be savouring the chance to flex his muscles against his transatlantic counterparts at Gleneagles next week, writes RyderCup.com’s Callum Johnson. Buoyed by his recent win at the D + D Real Czech Masters, the penultimate counting event to Ryder Cup qualification and the one that ensured Donaldson of his automatic place in Paul McGinley’s team, the man from Pontypridd is raring to test his game against the best that America has to offer. Donaldson, following in the footsteps of countryman Phillip Price, who debuted at The Belfry in 2002, recognises just how significant his conquest in Prague was and now has nothing less than victory set in his sights in Perthshire.

(AP)

The NFL said Wednesday that its new performance-enhancing drug policy will allow the Broncos’ Wes Welker and two other suspended players to return to the field this week. The deal with the players association also adds human growth hormone testing, ending several years of wrangling between the league and the union. Welker, Dallas Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick and St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey had been suspended for four games. Testing for HGH was originally agreed upon in 2011, but the players had balked at the science in the testing and the appeals process for positive tests.

Vikings bar Peterson from team activities

The Minnesota Vikings changed course early Wednesday and decided in the middle of the night to put star running back Adrian Peterson on hiatus while he deals with a felony child-abuse charge in Texas. Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf said they made they move after ”further reflection” and concluded it was best for the Vikings and for Peterson, their All-Pro workhorse who has played his entire NFL career with Minnesota and is accused of injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch earlier this year. The organization cited an NFL exemption and put Peterson on the exempt-commissioner’s permission list, meaning he is off the active roster while he deals with his legal affairs. Just a day-and-a-half earlier, the Vikings had said he would rejoin the team after missing Sunday’s loss to New England.

Roundtable: Will a non-Chaser win at Loudon?

Roundtable: Will a non-Chaser win at Loudon?

In this edition, NASCAR.com’s Holly Cain, Kenny Bruce and Zack Albert examine whether a non-Chase driver will steal a win Sunday at New Hampshire, whether it’s too early to count out the four Chase drivers who struggled in Sunday’s Chase opener and whether armed with a Chase victory, Brad Keselowski plays it safe until the next round. Now the series heads to New Hampshire. Holly Cain: As we saw last week … non-Chasers are willing to thrash it out, so maybe it becomes who’s willing to chance it. Things always get pretty interesting at New Hampshire.
